Kilimanjaro Live Presents: D/C + Special Guests


Tickets - £6adv


D/C possesses a talent for yearning, confessional lyrics wrapped within a blend of neo-soul and R&B influences - all delivered with the gravelly blues tones of an artist twice his age.

Born Daniel Caplen to a mother from the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and an English father, D/C’s sound is equally as inspired by the leftfield pop nous of James Blake and SBTRKT as it is by John Legend’s emotionally honest R&B.

Most of his current material has been crafted alongside his friend and producer Hoost, while other collaborators include Stephen McGregor (Lianne La Havas, Ne-Yo), Dave Tozer (John Legend), James Newman (Rudimental) and Simon Aldred (Sam Smith).

Asked to name his favourite current artists, D/C picks J. Cole, Chance The Rapper and especially Gregory Porter as people that he finds particularly compelling. As a result, D/C’s compositions spin away from tracks that can be easily pigeonholed within a single genre. Seabright Arms - Kilimanjaro Live  Presents: D/C + Special Guests

Early Doors Disco presents Randolph’s Leap + Joe Innes & The Cavalcade


Tickets - £8adv / £10 door

The band released their debut album ‘Clumsy Knot’ in April 2014 and garnered much critical praise:

“Masters of melody… lo-fi indie-pop gems” – The Metro

“The next generation of witty Scottish indie pop” – The Quietus

“the Jonathan Richman of Scottish indie” – The Herald

They are known for their prolific recording habits and, prior to Clumsy Knot, released a number of EPs and homespun albums over the last few years. May 2016 sees the band release their second album – Cowardly Deeds - a joyous collection of new tunes that perfectly captures the thrill of the band's live performance.

The album captures the dynamic and exuberant on-stage atmosphere that the band have become well known for. This is Randolph’s Leap’s most collaborative offering so far, showcasing the strengths and personality of the 8 musicians as well as Adam’s songwriting.

The band has won over many new fans thanks to their festival appearances at T in the Park, Celtic Connections, Wickerman and Green Man. The band featured in the BlogSound of 2013 and have recorded two sessions for Marc Riley’s 6Music show. In Feb 2013 the octet played their biggest gig to date when they headlined the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh

"They're ace!" – Marc Riley, BBC 6Music

Joe Innes & The Cavalcade

When he was young, Joe Innes found and subsequently buried a dead rat in his garden. This event is the subject of Pet Cemetery – the opening track of his debut mini-album 'The Frighteners', and is a good example of the offbeat observations and humour that litter his infectious songwriting.

Joe has been playing shows in London for years, and has played some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Secret Garden Party, Camp Bestival and Cambridge Folk Festival.

As well as performing quiet, inimitably soft songs as a solo artist, Joe and his alternative folk band The Cavalcade have become firmly rooted in London’s music scene, with a loud and energetic live show that gets audiences laughing and howling (literally) and has won them favourable comparisons to The Decemberists, Bright Eyes and The Mountain Goats.

After touring through six countries and successfully crowdfunding their first full length album - 2016 has already been a big year for the band, and they’ve still got a lot left to do.

Oh My God! It's The Church + DJ Johnny Breakbeat


Tickets - £8adv

The church service where party is the new praising...

"The best act to ever close Shangri-Hell at Glastonbury."


Beneath the dark shadows of London a new kind of church is forming. A church where party is the new praising, a church where ecstasy is their exaltation, a church where they wash away your sins in a new kind of holy spirit – absinthe. This is Midnight Massive, the underground church where you can confess, be blessed and get undressed. Rejoice in the sounds of their soul-funk show "Oh My God! It's The Church", as they wash away those sins and pray to the party Gods that you soul will be saved for one last tune. Join the Religious Revolution and dance away your misdeeds with performances sent from heaven and DJs sent from hell. "A hands down, hands up, show stopping, bible bopping, jaw dropping, what the flip is going to happen next roller coaster of massive amazement!." – Bestival Seabright Arms - Oh My God! It's The Church + DJ Johnny Breakbeat

Bugeye + Glue (EP launch) + Posa


Tickets - £4adv


If Debbie Harry, Jimi Hendrix, Kate Bush, & Keith Moon had been kidnapped by vegan aliens & bred, sometimes being tortured with hot poky things, in the pursuit of the ultimate rock & roll sound, the result may have sounded a little like this. Blending cherry-liqueur lyrics, bubblegum-kneecap bass electrics, goth-heavy drum compactions & hi-rise guitar sculptures, maybe one day all music will sound this good. But for now Bugeye stand alone.


Glue is a grungy electro punk rock band based in West Ham, London. They recently released their debut EP, Balloon. Their songs cover themes of escape, resistance, alienation, hope, love and self-determination. Musically it incorporates shades of college rock, techno, art punk, folk and grunge, bearing similarities to bands like Pavement, Weezer, Nirvana, British Sea Power, Fugazi and Blur.

Eff Raps + Blake Noir

Doors - 7.30pm

Tickets - £5

In an Industry full of rappers tipped the “one to watch”, the story of the 24-year old London born and raised recording artist, songwriter and record producer is an inspirational one to put in the picture. From BA’s to PA’s, Jason Ukaegbu better known by his stage name eff Raps, studied a music degree, juggling late nights in the recording studio with early mornings in the classroom.

He graduated from the University of Westminster with a B.A. in Commercial Music, as did Al Shux. Shortly after, he released his fifth mix tape "Since '91" on August 1st 2013.

Deciding not to release any material, eff Raps spent the entire 2014 year in the studio, both in London and in Germany, working on his debut EP entitled 'Long Story Short' which was released in August 2015, along with a 16 minute visual collage.

Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Matthew Logan Vasquez


Tickets - £12adv

2015 (The Year of The Ram) has been a year of major change for Matthew Logan Vasquez. He moved with his wife, Marthe, from Brooklyn to Austin, he saw the birth of his first child Thor, and after a decade since founding his critically acclaimed band, Delta Spirit, he’s finally decided to go it alone FOR THE FIRST TIME, with his solo debut, The Austin EP, to be released November, 2015 , and a full length LP, Solicitor Returns, to shortly follow in early 2016. This seachange is reflected on the EP’s stunning psych-folk-rock opener, a ballsy 18-minute track (yes EIGHTEEN minutes) that conjures desert visions of Crazy Horse guitar solos, David Crosby’s mustache, and all the good things about a journey through the past on mescaline. Matt actually grew up in Austin (and Dana Point, CA too) and the song is a slice of his life--an autobiography that isn’t even close to being finished-- an epic American saga that reflects his skill as a remarkable modern songwriter still on the rise. If Richard Linklater could write a song, this would be it. Seabright Arms - Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Matthew Logan Vasquez

Shan regularly performs around the UK and London's popular music venues & theatres where her fan base is on the rise.

Pennyblack Music Presents: Madam + Idiot Son + Dream Maps


Tickets - £6adv / £7 door


After playing three times before at our nights, we are happy to welcome Madam back on the bill. Fronted by the charismatic chanteuse Sukie Smith, Madam's noirish, nocturnal music brings to mind PJ Harvey, Portishead, and Cat Power at their smokey, intoxicating, late night best. The band have released two critically acclaimed previous albums, 'In Case of Emergency' and 'Gone Before Morning'; have collaborated with artists such as Swervedriver's Adam Franklin, and completed a soundtrack for the debut feature film of Neophyte Films, 'Hush Your Mouth' - an "urban ghost story." Madam’s long-awaited third album, ‘Back to the Sea’, will be released digitally on the 5th August and on limited edition vinyl on the 23rd September.



Idiot Son remain something of a hidden secret. Based around frontman Andy Thompson, the band formed in the late 90s, but only released their first single, 'Sunflowers', in 2000. It would take another four years before they would release their debut album, 'Lummox', on their own Poppycock label, featuring shimmering, solitary acoustic guitar and cello alongside conventional drums and bass, all winding around Thompson's wry observations of the capital city and its stories.

Now they are returning after a recording absence of ten years with their second album, the similarly sublime ‘Stibbington’. Tracks such as ‘Hold the Engines’,. ‘The Best That Men Can Do’ and ‘HalfSwimming’ build on Thompson’s melancholic themes of love, heartache and urban living. This gig at the Sebright Arms will be Idiot Son’s first London appearance since a previous Pennyblackmusic gig in January 2015.


Dream Maps is the project of London-based experimental musician and multi-instrumentalist Dominic Simpson. His fascination with UVB-76, a mysterious radio station believed to owned by the Russian military has provided much of the inspiration for Dream Maps’ largely instrumental debut album, ‘In Stormy Nights’, which , released in January, has been described as a work of “desolate but ethereal and haunting beauty.” Dream Maps ‘ debut performance will be at this gig.

DHP Concerts Presents: Chris Staples


Tickets - £7adv

For some time, Chris Staples was longing for things to return to the way they had been. The way they were before he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and his pancreas failed. Before his bike accident and the resulting hip surgery. Before the dissolution of a long-term relationship. He had been left to pick up the pieces, but for a long time couldn’t bring himself to. “I felt for a several years like I was mourning. Mourning a happier time in my life, or a time when I was more youthful. Everything was different for me after that period in my life.”

But the myths we build about our past are often gilded: we believe things were innocent, that they were whole. Staples, after feeling the seductive pull of that illusion for years, had enough of it. He was going to tear it down. As he began to pick up the pieces of his life, and coincidentally began to write music for a new album to follow his acclaimed 2014 Barsuk debut American Soft, his songs pivoted forward, becoming the new record, to be released in August 2016: Golden Age.
